OS X Yosemite :: Mail Context Menu Not Working?

Nov 30, 2014

Since the installation of Yosemite, Mail context menus no longer work. Control-clicking on a hyperlink in a mail messages opens a context menu containing these items:

Selecting any of the first 3 has no effect. Just clicking on the hyperlink will switch to the browser (Safari) and open the link. Clicking on "Services" does display a list of Services, and "Open URL in Firefox" at least seems to work. However, "Open URLs in Safari Tabs" does not. This seems to indicate a possible disconnect between Mail and Safari in particular.

If I open a Contact in Addres Book and click on "Home" r "Mobile", or "Work", or whatevere, a small context menu pops up, offering me several choices:  "Show in Large Type", "Face Time", etc.

OS X :: Finder's Context Menu By Control Click Stopped Working?

Oct 3, 2009

Mac PowerBook Pro with OSX 10.5.8

Control click stopped working and does not give me a contextual menu in the finder or any other program (including Stickies or Word) anymore.

I tried resetting Keyboard & Mouse System Preferences to default. I looked for Finder preference, or Finder preference file (it used to be "" according to an old 2005 forums.Macrumors post) but i could not find one.

I just reinstalled Leopard a couple of weeks ago, and do not want to go thru that again if i can avoid it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Command & Delete Not Sending To Trash But Context Menu Works

Jul 5, 2012

my DELETE functionality within finder is not working consistently anymore.  I am only seeing this issue on my new MAC BOOK AIR (used for work and received just last week), and not on my macmini (that is also running Lion and I've had for a year). 

Basically, I am having problems deleting files using CMD + DELETE.  I hit this command and get the typically apple "ping" sound for a something that isn't working, however I can right click and hit MOVE TO TRASH and it goes immediately, which means it's definitely not a file permission/in-use/lockout issue. 

I feel like I did something stupid to cause this, but it only doesn't work occasionally.  I have noticed it moreso right after I open or have used a file, but while CMD+DEL doesn't work, the MOVE TO TRASH does, so i'm lost. 

extremely frustrated and I've been through my System Pref settings alot in case I turned something off.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Context Menu Items Gone After Running "cleaner" Program?

Apr 12, 2012

So with the whole Flashback/Flashfake thing I paniced (stupid on my part) ran a virus program called VirusBarrier Express and ran CCleaner (again, stupid me). Hoping I would clear off unused or harmful files I apparently in the process messed up my context menu. Items that were previously in the context menu are now gone. I did as much reading about possible fixes as I could and this is where everything stands. 

Not every item in the image  below was at the botton of the context menu, but iPack certainly was as well as various other menu items that have since dissapeared. 

While searching the internet I came across a suggestion leading me to "library/Contextual Menu Items" and when I followed that directory for both my user and system I couldn't find a Contextual Menu Items folder. There wasn't any. I've had this "missing file/folder" problem before with preference files; just a side note. 

I created the folder manually and restarted with no change at all. 

Obviously I accidentally deleted something that shouldn't have been deleted. Is there any way to get back those missing items?

OS X :: Speed Up Specific Application In Use

Jul 18, 2009

I was wondering I have been playing World of Warcraft for a long time now, and I was just beginning to play around with the graphics settings, and Im on that border line where if I have my graphics set to full my FPS isn't quite there and so I was wondering if there was something I could do, or something that sped up the foreground application or chosen application or something, know what I mean? As this would hopefully just bump up my speed a tad. So that it focused it processing power on the application in use.

Also, while typing the above I just thought, when Snow Leopard comes, the OS itself will be a lot speedier, as well as applications like Safari, and the other Apple apps including in OS X, but will it significantly speed up normal other apps as well?

OS X :: User - Specific Application Folders

Oct 31, 2010

I want to separate the application folders of both myself and my girlfriend using the same Mac. She doesn't need to see my system tweaking tools and DVD conversion software, and likewise, I don't need to see her BlackBerry Desktop software and Facebook album tools. Currently, all apps reside in HD/Applications, as is default. My question is: is it safe to simply copy all applications into HD/User/USERNAME/Applications, or is this going to cause problems will existing file structures?

Mac Pro :: Assign Unused RAM To Specific Application?

May 16, 2012

I have an older Mac Pro with 16 GBs of RAM and I'm trying to get Lightroom 3 to stop running ridicualously slow. I've checked the activity monitor and with just a browser & LR3 running I have just over 10 GBs of Free memory. LR3 is using 1.72 GBs. Back in the day you could allocate RAM to a program like photoshop so it wasn't such a dog. Is there anyway to do this in MAC OS X?

OS X :: Force Application To Open In Specific Space?

Sep 2, 2009

recently bought a macbook pro and slowly getting the hang of it. spaces is really great but i often forget to make the best of it because i'm too quick to open the applications before switching to the right space. so, as the title says, is there a way to make sure programs always use a specified space when starting up? i know you can always move the programs afterwards but not unless you use the mouse and even after moving they still consider the startup space thier "main" space (for error messages and the like). also, i'd like to use my mouse as little as possible

MacBook Pro :: Sending Mail With Google Account - Application Specific Password Required

Aug 24, 2014

I have problems sending mail to people (not everybody) since Google obliged me to change my password on my Google account (attempt breaking-in apparently).

It took me a long time to re-configure everything, I choose the "double" protection from Google (with sms), and my Mac asked me this morning to give several times my Apple ID password, for iMessage, Face Time, etc...)

Now it's not possible to send a mail to my office. It is when I send it via website of Google, NOT when I use "Mail" on my Mac.

This is the message (partly in dutch) :  Application-specific password required. Learn more at [URL] .....

OS X :: Appropriate Menu Bar For The Application?

Jan 8, 2010

I have a late 2009 Mac Mini running 10.6.2 with an occasional odd problem. I'll go up to the menu bar at the top and discover that its not the appropriate menu bar for the application I'm in. I might be in Safari (responsive in the window), but it says "Finder" in the menu bar - or Quicktime or some other open app. I can cycle through the windows without a problem, but the menu bar doesn't change. Then all of a sudden, everything is fine.

OS X :: How To Access The Application Menu From The Keyboard

Jun 29, 2009

I remember seeing keyboard shortcuts such as Cmd-F2 that would allow access of the Application Menu. However, this does not work for me.

I have set the fn key to not be needed for function key access. That is, if I press f10, it acts as f10 rather than "mute."

How do I access the Application menu from the keyboard?

OS X :: Application Folder Copy In User Menu?

Sep 16, 2010

I seem to have lost my Applications folder from my User menu under Places in Finder. It is still present however, in the Macintosh HD menu under Devices. So I thought I would just drag it to my User menu where there was one before, however it started to copy the folder there. Is this the correct way to get it back there, should it in fact be copying the Application folder? Seems like a waste of nearly 11GB to simply have a copy there.
